At the College of Science and Technology, our progress—in advanced research, exceptional teaching and programs that bring science to local communities—is remarkable.
Over the past eight years, the college has hired 78 new tenure-track faculty members, including many world-class researchers and three members of the National Academy of Sciences. In addition, external research funding at the college has increased by 35 percent over the past three years. New CST hires and their innovative research have helped propel Temple University to a worldwide ranking of 18th in total Google Scholar research citations and an R1/highest research activity designation by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education.
Much of the college’s advanced research springs from our centers and institutes. By bringing together multidisciplinary investigators, they are making real and measurable advances in energy, new materials, cancer care, drug delivery and environmental conservation.
